We thought it was important to bring to your attention that Damien Lillard is having another MVP caliber year. The guard is delivering 29 points a game, nearly 8 assists, and 4.3 rebounds a game for a Portland Trailblazer team which finally awoke from their early-season hibernation.
Lillard and his team find themselves 3 games out of a playoff spot which is why I think we are going to witness “Lilliard Time” in all its glory for the rest of the season. Ok, glory is a little strong, let’s just say he has a lot of heart.
Night in, night out Lilliard brings it and I think it is fair to say that he deserves more respect then he receives from the east coast press who is to busy trying to dissect what is wrong with Ben Simmons jump shot. Look, I’m not sure anyone can fix Ben’s jump shot because he refuses to take it. You can’t get into Harvard if you don’t apply Ben.
Respect is hard to come by, but a player like Damien Lillard is rare and worth watching every time you get the chance! Consider this blog a public service announcement for the Portland Trailblazers reminding everyone outside of Portland that they are coming for Memphis.
